Giving Through Your Will

You can support The Wilderness Society by leaving a gift through your will or estate plan.

Workplace Giving

Making a donation through payroll deduction is one of the easiest and cost-efficient ways to help protect wilderness.

Giving Stock

Gifts of stocks, bonds or mutual funds appreciated in value may be especially attractive to you under the current tax laws.

Contribute Mutual Fund Shares

Much like a gift of stock, mutual funds are another way that you can make a larger gift than you might ordinarily be able to give – simply by giving shares of mutual funds you've owned for more than one year.
